Sammy Hagar & The Circle stream title track to new album Crazy Times

Sammy Hagar & The Circle are streaming a vidieo for the title track to their forthcoming album, “Crazy Times.”

Due September 30, the band recorded the follow-up to 2019’s “Space Between” with producer Dave Cobb at the historic RCA Studio A in Nashville, TN.

“Before I stepped into the studio with Dave, he’d told me he wanted the best of my career on this record, and he wasn't going to let me get out of that studio until I gave it to him,” says Hagar. “So, I said, ‘If you expect that from me, at my age, as many records as I've made, you're going to have to push me,’ and he said no problem. Obviously, I dug down and just tried to write good strong songs, great lyrics, great melodies and not worry so much about the arrangements because he had that covered. And he pushed and squeezed every one of us.

"We went in the studio with seven songs and came out with 10. We ended up cowriting three songs with Dave Cobb and the band—including the new track, ‘Crazy Times.’”


In support of the album release, Sammy Hagar & The Circle hit the road in June with the 21-city “Crazy Times” US amphitheater tour, when that wraps up in Sacramento, CA on October 1, Hagar will celebrate his 75th birthday at his annual week of Birthday Bash concerts at his Cabo Wabo Cantina in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico.

“Crazy Times” will be available in multiple formats, including CD, digital and streaming, with vinyl due for release on October 28.
